Stayed there March 2012 for a week, for a show at the Shanghai Expo Center in Pudong. First of all, the location is awesome if you do mostly work in Puxi. It is right next to NanJing walking road. As you come out of the hotel, turn left and you are on Nanjing walking road. There is a Subway and Dunken Donut right outside of the hotel. You can find just about anything on NanJing road, so the convenience of it is absolutely wonderful. And even beside NanJing road, the ShiMao building itself (where the hotel is part of) has a department store, so you can also shop there. It is not far from Xintiandi, I think about 14-16RMB ride. Not far from Bund. Also not too far from ChengHuang Temple if you want to see people and people and people. So location is great. It is just that if you want to go to Pudong everyday, as we did, it takes a while due to traffic.
Hotel is great, though not cheap. Has pretty much all the amenities you'd expect from a high end Starwood hotel. Room is good size, nicely decorated in a modern fashion. Breakfast is good, though about 240RMB. Check-in is at 11th floor. Staff was friendly, spoke good English. 66th floor has a lounge and it overlooks good part of Shanghai and has great view. Overall a good experience. If it was slightly less expensive, I would give it 5 stars. I do recommend it.
